Perfectionist Gil Buckman is a funny and loving husband who's also trying too hard to be the 'perfect' parent to his uniquely different kids. As Gil and the rest of the Buckmans discover, being the 'perfect' parent often means just letting children be themselves.
This movie has its share of laughs, but it's also Ron Howard's most personal film, and clearly his most ambitious.

It's hard to imagine a theme more universal and filled with human pitfalls than parenthood. And it's hard to imagine a movie treatment of that theme more humane and filled with gentle sympathy than director Ron Howard's Parenthood.
This feel-good family ensemble piece from director Ron Howard manages to avoid being oversentimental, and the result is an affectionate, leisurely comedy about the joys (and otherwise) of bringing up children.
Parenthood easily could have focused exclusively on yuppie parents and their kids; however, the script by Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel is more sophisticated than that, remembering that every parent is still a child too.
